EDM # 44 Draw a cat
This drawing came out of the blue yesterday morning (it's quite tiny, drawn in my small Moleskine). I remembered a photographer's name that I meant to Google and found a fantastic photo and I just had to draw it. I just adore cats like this and this is a beautiful profile. Copyright makes me very nervous so I have only drawn the head, but the whole photo is breathtaking. I came across his book last weekend and found it on Amazon for a fraction of the price. It set me thinking about what makes photography 'art'. It's something one can't put into words but you just know it when you see it - and this man is an artist IMHO. The book is a little treasure and (for 384 pages) costs the princely sum of £6! I feel an early birthday present coming on!
